Frequently Asked Questions
What is the process for signing and filing a bill of exceptions?
The process of signing and filing a bill of exceptions involves several steps. The bill of exceptions is a legal document used to question the law, particularly to highlight a mistake that has been made. It can be used as evidence once it's in the records. The judge can sign and file the bill with the trial court clerk once all parties are in agreement with what is stated in the bill of exceptions. The bill is made when one party alleges an exception and requests the justices to allow it. If the justices refuse, the party that alleges the exception writes the same and requires the justices to put their seals. The justices are obliged to do so. If a complaint is made against the justice, the king can cause the record to come before him. If the exception is not found in the roll, and the plaintiff shows the written exception with the seal of the justices, the justice is commanded to appear at a certain day to either confess or deny his seal. If he cannot deny his seal, they proceed to judgment according to the exception.
